HOME REACH: Part Buy, Part Rent

What is Part Buy, Part Rent?

If buying outright isn’t an option for you, Part Buy - Part Rent with Home Reach is an alternative route to get you on the property ladder.

This is where you would buy a share of up to 75% of a home and then pay 2.75% rent on the remaining share you haven’t purchased on a monthly basis.

With this option, you can either sell or purchase more shares in the future. Once you have purchased 100% shares on your home, you will then stop paying the monthly rent.

8 Simple steps to get you in your Home Reach home
